Endoscopic gastric polypectomy assisted by laparoscopy for giant gastric and duodenal lesion treatment: Case series from two centres



Endoscopic gastric polypectomy assisted by laparoscopy for giant gastric and duodenal lesion treatment: Case series from two centres



Journal of Minimal Access Surgery 13(4): 269-272



Endoscopy has developed rapidly, generating new challenges. Today, there are several procedures done endoscopically with very good results. In the past, the assisted laparoscopic colon polypectomy has been described, reducing the morbidity of a bigger procedure. Nonetheless, little has been said about the use of hybrid surgery in the management of gastric or duodenal polyps. Evaluating the safety and efficacy of the assisted laparoscopic gastric endoscopic polypectomy. A retrospective review of the database at our two centres was performed from 1996 to 2014. Thirteen patients were found in whom an assisted laparoscopic gastric or duodenal endoscopic tumour resection was performed. Thirteen patients, eight males and five females, with a median age of 61 years and average body mass index of 29.3. The procedure was done effectively and no need for further procedures was required for any patient. No complications were reported in the early post-operative period. The study shows that assisted laparoscopic gastric endoscopic polypectomy is a feasible and safe procedure that can be used for the management of giant polyps, which cannot be resected with the classical endoscopic polypectomy reducing the morbidity and complications associated with larger procedures.
